ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law Azam Nazir Tarar on Wednesday said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) should consider facing the courts before demonstrating for the judiciary.
Addressing a presser, he said the PTI government had victimized the opposition during its tenure adding that their policies helped mount the pressure on courts. “The court restored the National Assembly while PTI chief Imran Khan stormed the court and rejected its verdict”, he added.
He alleged that Mr Khan was, on one hand, rallying for justice while on the other hand, ridiculing the judiciary. “The courts serve notices upon him but he appears only whenever he wills”, he added.
Former PM Nawaz Sharif’s ouster was engineered while Mr Khan always got favors and was ousted democratically. “Mr Sharif always respected the court’s orders, left her ailing wife in the UK, and came back to the country”, he added.
